Introduction
For adults traveling with children, family vacations in Croatia are just about perfect. Life is so laid-back here. Let the kids hunt sea glass in the edge on the placid Adriatic while you sip something cold on the overlooking terrace. The people are as warm and welcoming as the nearby Italians with whom they share lots of culture (and cuisine). We’ll go sea kayaking and river rafting and ferry boating. For the adults, there’s truly spectacular walking and wine tasting in our friends’ vineyard. On any given day, you’ll all be immersed in history, quaint rural life and medieval cities to spark the imagination. Altogether, it’s a low-stress, highly enjoyable land right at the top of many travelers’ must-see lists. If we were ever to pack up our family and move to any destination we tour, this would be the one! Join us and see why.
The kids will love...
  • Sea kayaking on waters clear to depths of 30 feet
  • Playing "capture the flag" while adults go wine tasting
  • Exploring the city walls of Dubrovnik
Itinerary at a glance
DAYS 1-2 - DUBROVNIK
We meet in Dubrovnik (2 nights) for a warm-up walk on the city walls (and a stop at our guide’s favorite gelato shop).

At the harbor’s edge, we slide into two-person sea kayaks for an easy paddle out to a peacock-populated island with an abandoned fortress, inland lake, and perfect picnic spots.

DAYS 3-4 - PODSTRANA (SPLIT)
A short drive into the countryside includes a stop at a monastery and lunch at a winery before settling into our luxurious seaside resort (2 nights). On the nearby Cetina River, the canyons are deep but the rapids are mellow, and it’s a great spot for rafting.

DAYS 5-7 - HVAR / SPLIT
A morning ferry ride takes us to Hvar (2 nights), one of the world’s 10 most beautiful islands. We see for ourselves as we wander in lavender fields and stop to see the huge grinding wheels of an olive press in action. You’ll have options to go snorkeling…send the kids for a bike ride…go shopping and sit down for lunch in a local friend’s agriturismo. On our last day, we ferry to Split for an exploration of Diocletian's Palace.
